  1. Bruce, That is the one that came off my servo (minus the offtake tube that snapped off). Mark.
  2. Hi Conrad, Thanks for that. I will try TD Fitchett Ltd first and get back to you if they can't sort me out, Cheers, Mark.
  3. Trouble is, all the suppliers seem to be selling different aftermarket servos, probably all with different size non return valves.
  4. Hi Phil, Thanks very much for that info, I will give them a call tomorrow. Mark.
  5. Hi John, Sorry, the photo is of the old broken valve. The new one from Moss was part number 18G8953 the diameter is 23mm. Any ideas ? Mark.
  6. Hi all, I have a problem, in that, I have a broken servo non return valve, this is the valve that "push fits" into the servo. I ordered a replacement from Moss, but the diameter is too big. Any ideas where I can get one that fits ? see attached pic. I may have to just bite the bullit and order a new servo, if I have to do this, where is the best place to buy one from. I have looked on line - they all look slightly different. Thanks in advance. Mark.
  7. Hi Phil, I jack up the front first and place the axle stands at their lowest, then the same at the back. I do this 3 or 4 times raising the stands each time. Cheers. Mark.
  8. Sean, they are the correct tubes (plated steel) problem was, they were not properly "bonded/sealed into the throttle bodies hence the trace of fuel on the body.
  9. Thankyou Waldi, I was thinking of Araldite, that should seal as well as bond.
  10. Hi All, Just taken the throttle bodies off to (hopefully) get the butterflies centred so they seal properly. The hoses on the balance tubes were very tight, so much so, that one of the tubes came out of the body. It looks as though this was never "sealed" into the body properly, as there are signs of some sort of leakage (see pgoto below). My question is, should these metal tubes be bonded/sealed into the bodies, or just push fit ? The same applies to the air idle valve. Just want to go belt and braces on this to make sure I have no leaks anywhere. Thanks. Mark.
  11. Thanks all for your replies.
  12. Success - almost. Another final adjustment on the butterflies today, started engine, good idle, even vacuum on all inlets, engine stalled when closing off air idle screw - fantastic, then the rotor arm broke in half. New one arriving tomorrow, so I am feeling very positive now. Just want to get on the road and drive it. Thank you all. Mark.
  13. Thanks for the replies. I have done some more fiddling as below:- Loosened off the screws holding the butterflies, re-centred, and re-tightened screws. Only have one adjusting screw on spindle lever (5+6) this is fully wound out. Adjusted butterfly clearances (top and bottom) to 0.002", but the "bible" says adjust so that a 0.002" feeler gauge will NOT pass through - is this correct ? All 3 vertical linkages are free and the whole linkage moves freely. Air idle valve open one turn, but engine does not stall when closed. Disconected the brake servo hose and blanked off - there was no difference on the RPM. Did the tongue test on the metering vacuum hose - all good. I am going to adjust the butterfly clearances further today - maybe to 0.001". Thanks. Mark.

  15. Hello, Converting my 1971 TR6 CP back to Pi. Set all the butterfies today, started the engine , all good. When I pushed in the choke cable (only connected to the MU) the revs went up to 3000RPM ish. Any ideas why this would happen, MU problem ? Thanks in advance. Mark.
